The entertainment industry has suffered a lot during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only has the novel coronavirus lockdowns forced theaters to shut down and studios to postpone the release of major blockbuster movies, but it’s also forced the production of major films and television series to shut down.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage was one of the lucky few that completed filming. However, despite completing principal photography, Sony decided to push the release date of the film.
According to Venom producer Dan Wilson, it seems like the film is still in post-production. Speaking in an interview with Vanity Fair, the producer confirmed the status of the film, saying that Let there be Carnage director Andy Serkis is still working remotely on the post-production of the film. The team is still unsure about the current release date by Sony, because it seems like there are still reshoots tat need to be done – an inevitable procedure for any blockbuster movie like the Venom sequel.
“Nobody wants to go into an environment that’s going to be risky and that goes for crew members too. It’s not just talent. It’s everybody involved on set,” Wilson told the entertainment news outlet. “There’s a nervousness and that’s natural and understandable. In the plans that we’ve discussed, they’ve certainly taken into account and we’ll see when we get there I guess.”
We understand the cast and crew’s feelings. Nobody wants to get sick with COVID-19, and have reshoots begin this early could risk the health of everyone on set.
Let’s wait and see when the team decides to continue work on the film.
Venom is set to debut on June 25, 2021.
